Egg Noodle Lasagna

Mike's Family Lasagna

After some pretty involved cooking over the holidays, we've been in the mood for some simple comfort food. As I am sure is the case for a lot of people, a great source of comfort food for us is dishes we grew up eating. This egg noodle lasagna was a staple in my house growing up, and we still make it regularly today.

When I first pulled out the recipe for this dish, Sherry gave me grief about it. "That's not lasagna, it's a casserole - it doesn't even have lasagna noodles! And Cheddar cheese?!". Lasagna or not, she now loves it as much as I do, "yellow cheese" and all.

When I left my home town of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to go to school here in San Diego, my Mom wrote out recipe cards for my favorite dishes. Here is the recipe card for our "lasagna" - you can tell it has been well used. The only change we have made is to up the amount of green onions (you can see where Sherry scribbled out "3" and wrote "6" - now we generally use more than that). Oh, and the noodles we use are labeled "Wide Egg Noodles".
